Your heat pump is one of the most important pieces of any HVAC system. It runs continually all year to deliver both heating and cooling for your indoor space. Because your heat pump works throughout the year, it’s at a bigger risk of wear and tear. Worried your heat pump isn’t operating properly? These factors can determine if it calls for our professional help.
- Weak or unreliable heating and cooling. Most models of heat pumps depend on forced air to heat and cool your space. If you aren’t achieving comfort levels even after your heat pump has been on for a while, call United States Heating & Air Conditioning at 407-972-3091 to arrange heat pump service.
- Your heat pump is loud. Your heat pump will cause some noise even when it’s in perfect condition. But if that noise is louder than normal or rare, it could indicate that something is not right with the equipment. Take note of the sound and call 407-972-3091 for a heat pump inspection to check for proper operation.
- Ongoing starting and stopping. A well-maintained heat pump should not be turning off and on constantly. This problem is also known as short-cycling and can lead to increased wear and tear over time.
- Heat pump frozen or not turning on. If you notice the heat pump is humming but the fan is not moving, or does not seem to operate at all, it could indicate a minor electrical or small part failure, or it might be a more dangerous safety issue. Call 407-972-3091 to have the entire system assessed immediately. We do not suggest troubleshooting problems due to the risk of electric shock or potential further damage.
- Utility bill is steadily going up. A heat pump offers energy-efficient heating and cooling. If you haven’t altered your thermostat but energy bills are starting to climb, don’t wait to call for heat pump service to confirm the system is working as efficiently as possible.
5 REASONS WHY YOU MAY NEED HEAT PUMP REPAIR
Once you’ve recognized that there’s an issue, the next step is to understand potential causes. Unfortunately, there are several reasons why your heat pump is not working correctly. At United States Heating & Air Conditioning, our pros specialize in finding the origin of the problem as quick as possible to save you time and money.
Here are several reasons why your heat pump isn’t operating properly.
- There’s an issue with the thermostat. Your thermostat is the brain of your HVAC system, leading your heat pump to regulate your home to the preferred temperature. If it’s not working appropriately, your heat pump won’t either. Check to make sure the thermostat settings are correct, and check or replace the batteries. If these checks don’t fix the problem, call United States Heating & Air Conditioning at 407-972-3091 for support.
- An important component has broken or failed. Like a vehicle’s engine, there are many electrical and moving parts in your home’s engine. If a component breaks down or fails, your heat pump may struggle to operate normally or even at all. And just like a car, regular heat pump tune-ups can help prevent a failure by recognizing minor issues before they become bigger problems.
- Lack of proper maintenance. To keep your heat pump in optimal condition and the warranty valid, you should have heat pump maintenance performed every year. At your maintenance appointment, United States Heating & Air Conditioning will assess, lubricate and clean the components. A smoothly running heat pump could equal decreased energy bills and might even extend your heat pump’s overall life span. We offer a Complete Comfort Club that keeps up with regular maintenance service. You’ll get annual tune-ups for your heating and cooling system, plus priority service, exclusive repair discounts and more.
- Your air filter is dirty or clogged. Like any other type of HVAC system, your heat pump utilizes an air filter to stop dust and other pollutants from getting into the internal parts of the system and flowing into your indoor air. If you don’t replace the filter consistently it can easily get clogged. A dirty air filter causes the heat pump to work harder to provide the same amount of heating or cooling, which can affect your energy bill.
- Your heat pump is getting old. Heat pumps can last up to 20 years with correct maintenance. But as they get older, the more likely they are to having to need repairs. If yours is aging, it may be time to consider getting a new one.
